We received these images not too long ago from long-time customer City Hire, who have several Brisbane locations.
Back in January 2011, Brisbane experienced one of the worst floods on record affecting some 20,000 homes situated alongside the Brisbane River.
City Hire helped locals in a time of need by lending out their Kanga fleet free of charge to local residents at West End and also at Oxley.
Manager Mark Hughes said, “We used the Kanga Loader with a Pine Railway Sleeper Clamped in the 4-in-1 bucket to push mud and debris down the street to the nearest drain. The Kanga was also invaluable for lifting the heavy water-logged furniture on to the truck in the streets of Oxley.”
Check out the photos Mark has sent through of the team getting dirty and helping with the aftermath of the floods.
